Nurturing Our Literary Community
The Edinburgh City of Literature Trust nurtures Edinburgh’s creative community, providing ample opportunity every month to network at our Literary Salon. This is a chance for anyone with a professional interest in literature to gather, exchange ideas, and chat. Special invited guests talk on a broad range of subjects, making each Salon a unique and educational experience. The Trust is a significant annual presence at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, giving Edinburgh’s new writing community a stage at Story Shop, with training and networking opportunities thrown in for good measure. And the Trust helps keep the tradition of the Scottish Makar alive, taking part in appointing a new Edinburgh Makar every three years to live, breathe and write the city.
